One of Brazil's most popular brands, Cia.Maritima is known for its handwork, using embroidery, crystals, beading, lace, and other embellishments to construct swim collections full of South American glam. This year, designer Benny Rosset even sent out a maillot with a curling ribbon popping vertically from the fabric, a delightfully whimsical if possibly impractical dose of humor (we couldn't quite tell how stiff it was!).
He also sent out some very leggy models in flowing caftans, crafty bikinis, and a shimmering gold coverup we expect to see on some of our favorite hipster fashionistas. What do you think of this year's collection?
